Man United is said to have prepared 60 million euros to sign midfielder Kim Min-jae from Napoli next summer.
Kim Min-jae’s value skyrocketed during the 2022/23 season. The Korean midfielder was crowned Serie A champion with Napoli. He also made a strong impression at the 2022 World Cup. Although he has only spent one season playing in Naples, Kim Min-jae is starting to be contacted with a large transfer fee.
Kim Min-jae has a release clause of 45 million euros. This provision can be activated by foreign clubs from July 1-15. Napoli are also ready to make a significant profit from the sale of the Korean midfielder. Of course, Napoli are not quite ready to sell Kim Min-jae, but they still want to listen to offers.
Corriere dello Sport claim that Man United is trying to knock out all competitors in this deal by paying a sum greater than Kim’s termination fee. This approach can make it easier for Napoli to sit at the negotiating table and let their key player go.
In addition to Kim Min-jae, Man United is also linked with another Napoli player, striker Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian has scored 27 goals this season. A name that can score goals is what coach Ten Hag is asking for the leadership of Man United so that the team can continue to compete for the top positions in the rankings next season.
